C.J. Dennis 2

From 1922 until his death in 1938, C.J. Dennis worked as a journalist for the Melbourne Herald, writing poetry and short articles. His home was a property called Arden in the Dandenong Ranges. The house was destroyed by fire, but the garden can still be visited in the village called Toolangi.

The garden is now known as the Singing Gardens and is the location of a quaint café. The C.J. Dennis Society will hold a poetry festival in the gardens on 18 October 2014.
